Webinar: Seismic Design Special Concentrically Braced Frames
May 7, 2020 @ 11:00 am - 1:30 pm
The design of ductile concentrically braced frames has evolved considerably over the past few revisions of AISC 341. This seminar will present fundamentals on the seismic behavior of concentrically braced frames and the current AISC 341-16 provisions for Special Concentrically Braced Frames that are intended to achieve ductile seismic response. Specific points of emphasis will include the application of capacity-based design principles, braced frame member design, and braced connection behavior and detailing for ductility. An overview of a design example will also be provided.
